Minister Arkom noted the good cooperation by the officials from agencies including the Phuket office of the Department of Highways, the Provincial Electricity Authority of Phuket, the Provincial Waterworks Authority of Phuket and Wichit Municipality in making the 10m wide footbridge, which traverses Wichit Songkram Rd, officially designated as Route 4020, a reality.

“The footbridge aims to provide a safe, convenient service for customers and communities by building the overpass which is constructed with a strong steel structure guaranteed by Department of Highway standard,” noted a press release marking the occasion today.

The official opening of the footbridge today follows repairs carried out after strong winds broke many of the large panes of glass along the gantry in a storm in September.

At the height of the storm, wind speeds in and around Phuket Town exceeded 46km/h and more than 54mm of rainfall was recorded in one three-hour period. (See story here.)
